Another video

Another video of him riding his bike, you will need to turn up the volumn to hear him, my camera doesn't pick up sound so far away.

Wyatt

Ok, my 'tomorrow' was somewhat delayed.















Wyatt doing his 'ka-chow' just like
Lightening McQueen!
















He was playing with the chalk he got from
G-MA Lori and had Gayle outline his body.
This is how he wanted his picture taken.
Lightening McQueen hat, bracelt and shoes!
















Here he goes, off on his bike WITHOUT
training wheels. I am so proud of him

















These pics are on my side bar, but I just
counldn't resist highlighting them here.

Hope you can pull up this video. I wouldn't
say I am that great at it, just a proud mama.
You wouldn't ever know this is his first time
riding without the training wheels! Turn up
your volumn, it's a little hard to hear what
he is saying.

No Training Wheels!!

Wyatt has been asking for weeks for me to take off his training wheels...each time I tell him no, I am either busy, the weather is not decent or something... Saturday, he asked again. I asked Gayle if she could do it and as soon as the training wheels came off (his little bike) he took off down the driveway..Gayle hollars at me to come see, I rush outside with the camera for her to take pictures (I was feeding Wesley) and she told me he didn't hesitate one second! OFF he went. I am so proud of him! We are still working on getting the training wheels off his big boy bike, but he road his little bike (he calls Rocket) almost all afternoon and it rained on him part of the time. He had his raincoat on so no biggie.....until mommy made him come in. He wasn't a happy camper by that point, but he sure had fun. He road Rocket as much as he could Sunday too, of course it rained again and I sat in the garage watching him all bundled up in a blanket since it was pretty chilly out with the rain and wind. I will try to get the pictures posted tomorrow and maybe the video clip. I have noticed since he has been on his medication, he doesn't have as many temper tantrums but he does cry now and doesn't get as mad as he used to. The counselor said he is going through an adjustment and is discovering 'new' emotions. All normal reactions so we will just move forward.

ADHD

After waiting almost 6 months for an appointment for Wyatt to be seen by a Pediatric Neurologist, he had his appointment yesterday. Wyatt was diagnosed with ADHD as well as his genetic makeup causing him to have the impulses etc. associated with ADHD children.

His Neurologist has him on medication, Tenex, the generic form is Guanfacine (gwahn-fa-seen). We will continue his counseling at the Burrell Center, his in-home counseling, visits with the Neurologist and his Early Childhood Development school program that I can only hope will not only gain my sanity back, but continue to help Wyatt's behavior. (This has been a struggle for him for what I would say to be 2 years now) For anyone who has a hyperactive child, I'm sure you know what I am talking about.
